Abstract

Human rights law has long been a bug-bear of the Conservative right, with critics of the Human Rights Act particularly vocal in their condemnation of its restrictive nature. At his recent Conservative Party conference speech, the Prime Minister David Cameron re-committed his party to its repeal. Democratic Audit asked human rights law experts to respond, with the verdict not good for Cameron and his party.
